In the 20+ years that we have been involved in the log home industry, We hear the same thing over and over when we ask folks when they’re wanting to start building. “In the spring” is without a doubt the phrase that we hear over and over again. But let’s think about this; is it really better to begin construction in the spring? Yes, the weather does seem to be much more favorable, but what else can you expect to have if you wait until spring to start building???
* Higher prices for building materials. Think about it, if everybody waits until spring to begin building, that drives the demand for building materials up, thereby increasing costs
* Harder to find the kind of materials you need, because everybody else needs them too
* Harder to find workers to build your home. Everybody else needs them, so you’ll have wait in line. This means it will take longer to build your home
* When subs (plumbers, electricians, HVAC, etc) are in high demand, that usually means that you’ll pay more. But by building in the winter, a lot of times it means that you can get it done cheaper, they have bills too
So, if you want to save money and have builders ready to construct your new log home, Now is the time to start building. Call us today at 423-636-0045.
